We stumbled into the Savanna Cultural Center. The entire second floor was taken up by an elaborate 800-square foot HO-scale train layout of a 1930s Savanna, Illinois.

As you probably know by now, I love tiny miniature things. I have since I was a kid. It is only by the good grace of God, that I am not holed up in a garage somewhere right now adding grimy details with a double ought paintbrush to a tiny little building of my own tiny imaginary town.
